The tinctures exist for very long time, since the beginning of the distillation of alcohol. But with the development of the Western medicine these tinctures are thrown out as a folk medicine.
However, the tinctures are medicine. The alcohol used to separate the chemical ingredients from herbs or food creates a highly concentrated liquid that can be stored for long period.
Unlike the pills which are containing only one or several substances that are mostly artificial, the tinctures remain “full” because they are extracting all the goodness from the plants.
They are strong, and therefore it is important to treat them as a strong source of healthy benefits which rarely have mutual contraindications and side effects.
They are mazing also because you can easily make at home and you can customize them according to your needs. Usually the tincture is made with 80% alcohol, but for those who want to avoid alcohol, you can do them with glycerol or malic acid.
The tinctures with glycerin are great for kids because they are cute, but the final product is not so efficient and strong.
The tonic is intended for consumption over a long period, gradually and effectively strengthens and builds the system. Apple acid solvent is perfect when you want to make a tonic-tincture.
Not only is 100% non-toxic, but it also has many health benefits:
- It regulates the acid-base balance
- It helps in improving the digestive tract. If apple acid has an organic origin, it will contain symbiosis of good bacteria that are excellent probiotic.
- Acetic acid has potent antimicrobial activity and has been shown to reduce cholesterol and helps with insulin sensitivity.
- The apple acid is antifungal, antibacterial, antiviral, also stimulates the release of energy that increases mental and muscle functioning.
- It strengthens the immune system
